SicShelby Posted July 25, 2009 Report Share Posted July 25, 2009 See article here. My opinion may differ from many of you, of course, which is okay. I was active duty Marine Corps from '01-'05. I was there when we invaded, and was back for more. The majority of the Iraqi's were happy to have Saddam ousted - they welcomed the freedom of being lifted out from under a suppressing leader. As the years have gone by though, the presence of the US military in Iraq has become more and more questionable. It really just seems that it is time for us to GO, especially when this kind of press comes up. What really bothers me is that they are making it sound like the Soldiers that pursued the insurgents were murderers. They may have shot someone innocent, they may not have, and NO ONE knows - WE were not there. The thing that gets me is... what about the THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT IRAQI'S that were killed by the insurgents, by roadside bombs and suicide bombs in marketplaces, etc.? What about THEM? And they are making us look like the bad guys? The Soldiers were in pursuit of insurgents that tried to kill them. The insurgents are after (and killing with no remorse) innocent people.
